Since it’s so floriferous and easy to grow, Invincibelle Ruby hydrangea makes a gorgeous flowering hedge or foundation planting. It is worthy of a prominent place in your front landscape or in your view out the kitchen window where you’ll admire it all summer long.
Its smaller 3-4’ size helps it fit easily into most landscapes and borders where the two-toned ruby blossoms will complement purple, blue, yellow or white flowered companions. You could group a few together to brighten up a lackluster space near the edge or back of your yard or grow a single plant as a specimen in a flower garden.
Since it blooms on next year’s growth, it won’t hurt Invincibelle Ruby if you cut its flowers to use for bouquets or craft projects. And since there is such an abundance of flowers produced, you won’t even miss the ones you cut. You’ll love this variety’s extra strong stems and dark foliage that contrasts beautifully with the shimmering pink and ruby blossoms.
Hydrangeas are often used in summer bridal bouquets or for garden parties since they are in such plentiful supply that time of year. They have a certain romantic air about them, don’t you agree? So, if you have a special event coming up in the next year or two, plant this shrub now so you’ll have plenty for picking later.
